Diabetes has a high incidence rate among South Asians from India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh. South Asians are three to five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than most Canadians.
Diabetes is a problem with the body’s insulin production or use. Usually when we eat carbohydrates they are turned into glucose (or sugar) and used by the body for energy. Carbohydrates are found in fruit, starchy vegetables, milk, and grain products. Insulin helps the body use glucose by helping it enter the body’s tissues. With diabetes, the body’s insulin is not working properly and blood glucose levels rise. If left unchecked, the build-up of glucose may eventually damage organs including the eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart. By maintaining healthy blood glucose levels, people with diabetes can live long and healthy lives.
